What I do

Hello my name is Jess and I am the designer maker and creator of Cissie Edna’s fancies.

I love the 1960s and 1970s vibrant fashions, crazy prints and bold colours. The idea of finding a piece of clothing or some fabric from those decades is my idea of a good time.

A friend of mine once said lets go retro rummaging!

Be it at a car boot or jumble sale or in all the charity shops in town. You know the fabrics and the dresses and you definitely know that smell. That musky old smell. That vintage smell. And once I’ve found my prize, it’s a good day!

I hurry home to try and squeeze into it. More times than not I end up un-picking all the seams, and making it into some sort of women’s accessory. I used to do this just for myself, but I had so many people asking me where I got whatever it was that I had made. I decided to start making more, so I could sell them. Now I look for whatever fabric or clothing I can find to make accessories, not just for women but also for children, your pets and your home.

I have to be sparing with it, so I like to mix it up with really gorgeous retro fabrics. An example would be something from the Aunties Attic range from Robert  Kaufman. It’s so cool because it really does look like 1960s or 1970s fabric!

So that’s what I do.

And these are examples of what I’ve made.
